6:06 am
the deadline for either a contract agreement, another contract extension, or that cooling-off period. if none of those three things happens, we could see another strike as soon as monday morning. now, as far as the report that this three-person governor- appointed panel is writing, it's not going to include recommendations for the governor on the cooling-off period. just the facts and points that he should be thinking about as he considers whether or not to order that. back to you. >> there is a buzz about this 60-day cooling-off period. what's the likelihood, what's the word right now on that? >> reporter: well, i can tell you that the last five times that a governor has ordered this panel to convene, a cooling-off period has eventually been ordered. >> all right. anne makovec in walnut creek, thank you. today crews will take a big step in fixing the bad bolts on the new eastern span of the bay bridge. the first concrete will be poured for a steel saddle and that saddle will do the job the bolts were supposed to handle. it's part of the backup plan after 32 bolts broke on the

6:09 am
"operation cease-fire" is not being run like the city's number one strategy. there is no permanent director and the few officers who have been running "operation cease- fire" have only been doing it part time. chief sean whent says that will change. >> i'm able to dedicate full- time enforcement team to cease- fire to make sure the police department meets our end of the program. >> reporter: christin ayers, kpix 5. >> the mayor and the police officer say they are working with teams at east oakland's nonprofit youth uprising to start a youth-based safety program. we're live in sunnyvale where one lucky person bought a winning powerball combination. we'll tell you how much they won when we return. >> it's a controversial plan to help struggling homeowners. and a bay area city is front and center. how wall street is waging war on this eminent domain experiment.

6:36 am
bargaining so i'm surprised to hear you think this can be achieved by sunday night. >> reporter: the governor's panel is preparing a report. they will give that to the governor by sunday and he will decide on that cooling-off period. now, you may remember bart managers initially said they didn't want a cooling-off period. they didn't want to postpone it. now they are the ones pushing for the cooling-off period which shows just how bad things have gotten. live in walnut creek, anne makovec, kpix 5. vallejo police say two men posing as pg&e workers robbed a home on farrell street near central avenue. officers say the suspects wore orange vests and hardhats and once they got inside the home threatened the resident with a gun and tied him up. they drove away in a gold suv that looks like a cadillac escalade. you should always check identification through a peep hole before opening your door. a gun buy-back event will be held tonight in san francisco's mission district. guns in working condition can
